So F1 is about to start for 2010.
It’s shaping up to be an interesting year. I’m hoping for most of the action to be on track this year. Maybe there will be some overtaking 🙂 Of course, there is already controversy about the McLaren aerodynamics. Personally, I’m not sure I’d like to be plugging and unplugging holes with my knees for 2 hours. Still, for a speed advantage there is not much a F1 driver wouldn’t do. It will be interesting to see how Schumacher goes. I think he’ll be competitive. The new teams, on the other hand, look like they are all going to struggle. They will probably affect results in all the wrong ways. Let’s hope they’re looking for the blue flags.
I’m going for Webber again this year. With some wins last year, I think the pressure is off him a bit this year. Let’s see.
It was good to see Massa up there in practice. Hopefully we’ll have a safe year in 2010.

It looks like the Red Bulls are competitive again this year (how good was Vettel on his pole lap!) but I reckon the Ferraris will be the class of the field for at least the first few races.
I think Alonso’s the most talented of the current bunch of drivers(along with Schumi of course but he might be a different animal now) so if Ferrari give him a decent car, he could well have the measure of everybody else.
The dynamics of the Button/Hamilton duo will keep me interested. Everybody seems to assume Lewis will win that one but I’d like to see how his more agressive style’s gonna affect his fuel consumption rate, compared to Jenson’s smoother style.
Looking forward to the first out-of-gas, pushing-the-car-over-the-finish incident, we haven’t seen that since Jean Alesi in the late 90’s and Prost in the mid-80’s 🙂
